Overview

The student to faculty ratio is the number of students who attend a school divided by the number of teachers in the institution.
It is an important factor to evaluate colleges because the low student to faculty ratio tends to lead the smaller class sizes and giving more one-to-one learning Opportunities to students in classroom. Higher student to faculty ratio means that an instructor (professor) has more students to take care and the individual class size may be larger. In general, top ranked and well-known colleges have low level of students to faculty ratio and try to keep the ratio low.
University of Pittsburgh-Titusville has the lowest number of students per faculty (2 to 1) and Los Angeles County College of Nursing and Allied Health has the second lowest number of students (3) based on academic year 2019-2020 college academci data.
